WWE Monday Night RAW results from 5/15/17

Here are the results from tonight’s (Mon. May 15, 2017) episode of WWE Monday Night RAW (courtesy of PWInsider):

We are in Newark, New Jersey and your announcers are Michael Cole, Booker T, and Corey Graves.

Raw General Manager Kurt Angle makes his way to the ring.

Kurt welcomes everyone to Raw.  Kurt mentions what Roman Reigns did to Braun Strowman last week.  Kurt says Braun suffered a shattered elbow and could be out of action for up to six months.  Kurt mentions that Braun had set his sights on the Universal Title.  Kurt asks who will face Brock Lesnar for the Universal Title.  It has to be earned so there will be a Fatal Five Way Match at Extreme Rules with the winner facing Brock Lesnar.

Kurt says the competitors are Seth Rollins, Samoa Joe, Finn Balor, Bray Wyatt, or Roman Reigns.

Kurt says it will be historical and extreme.

Roman Reigns makes his way to the ring.

Roman stares at Angle and he tells Kurt they don’t need a Fatal Five Way Match because he is the number one contender.  This is his yard.  He beat Undertaker at Wrestlemania and he put Strowman in that ambulance.  He is the only one who can beat Brock for the Universal Title.

Finn Balor makes his way to the ring.

Finn tells Roman exactly what he told Seth Rollins two weeks ago.  He was the first Universal Champion and he never lost his title.  If you want a piece of the beast, the line starts behind him.  

Roman says that Finn has heart but he does not have the killer instinct to beat Brock.

Finn says that Roman should know what he is about because he beat Roman on his first night on Raw.

Samoa Joe’s music plays and he comes to the ring.

Joe says they have it all wrong.  It is not about hearts or anybody’s yard.  It is not about anybody’s club.  It is about actions and results.  Action, he locked in the Kokina Clutch on Seth Rollins so he was unresponsive on the ground and his body goes limp.  Action, he enters the Fatal Five Way and the result is that he wins.  Action, he goes on to face Brock Lesnar . . . 

Bray Wyatt’s introduction interrupts Samoa Joe and Bray is in the ring.   He says the beast approaches and you put on your brave faces.  He feels you trembling.  You will cower and you will fall.  You will run.  Bray . . . 

is interrupted by Seth Rollins.  He says Extreme Rules is a few weeks away and New Jersey did not come here for talking.  Seth says he came to fight Samoa Joe.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    Agree but I been waiting longer for a Dean Amborse heel turn which I believe is coming.

  • Kristopher Robinson

    I’m ready for Miz to be past the mid card level.

  • numberoneromanreignsfan

    all ambrose needs to do is get a shave a hair cut and a couple of showers

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    So much for the WWE putting the IC title on Roman Reigns I don’t think it is happening. I think the Miz when he win the IC title he has a long run. Then again Amborse may hold on the title for a little longer.
